Diamond use

Post  jeffewing997 on Wed Feb 08, 2012 1:07 am

I may have missed the disscusion but did we ever decide to use diamonds for tools and weapons? I saw I think 6 swords and a shovel. Also whats the plan with distributing swords? I'd love to have a diamond sword Very Happy

Somebody made six swords? Unless we agreed to do so in the past few days some people are going to be angry.

Edit* Just checked for myself. I saw 4 diamond swords and a shovel. Seriously, whats the point of a diamond shovel.

I made one diamond sword for my own use, because I was sick of getting killed by zombies. See, we set the server difficulty level to "hard", so zombie attacks do 3 hearts of damage. So do iron swords. On an unarmored foe, that translates to four hits to kill someone with 10 hearts. I have 10 hearts, a zombie has ten hearts. We face each other and stab at each other, we're gonna be in a mutual kill situation. Due to SMP lag, it is not always possible to do a jump-slash for a critical hit to get an advantage, or rely on timing and the player's slightly longer reach. Diamond swords will kill a zombie in three hits rather than four, which has several times already meant I ended a fight with one heart left rather than being dead.

I have been intending to enchant my sword, but keep getting killed in hilariously silly and stupid ways every time I get over 10 XP levels.

I have no idea who made six diamond swords, or something as insanely pointless as a diamond shovel. I once made a diamond shovel in a single-player game, because I was packing up to go exploring for a new homestead, and needed to bring a shovel along and didn't want to tie up two inventory slots just to have a backup.

I guess that's justifiable. At least you have some well thought out logic behind your use of diamonds.

I personally don't mind that you made one so you wouldn't die. But who the heck would make 6 swords!? 6!? WHY? I guess since they're there we should make the best use of them and grind the heck out of skellys and enchant them.

A single diamond sword to survive zombies is fine, sret. Whoever made 6 diamond swords isn't thinking right. We may have a few diamond blocks, but we're quite low for so many people on the project.

I believe the one responsible would also be responsible for the incinerator... I'm not gonna point fingers, but I do have a good idea of who it is...

Huh? Why is my name in there. o.o

Anyway, a diamond shovel isn't the end of the world. If you have over a stack of diamonds you can spare one to have a shovel that lasts forever. Sometimes you need to dig a lot of dirt anyway. But 6 diamond swords...No
Bye bye diamonds.. I'd consider this to be too far and actual griefing. Somebody needs to be dealt with.

I had gotten 15 diamonds on my most recent spelunking trip, that basically evens it out. Whoever did that needs to step-up and tell who they are, because I also have my suspicions

I made the diamond knockback sword a week ago I had a bunch of exp I wanted to spend before I died and lost it. So I made a sword figuring some one could use it in the mob farms.

Sorry my bad Sad

A diamond sword in the mob farms is a complete waste as they're safe to kill and designed so you can kill them easily with splash potions, stone swords or even your fists. One diamond sword is not a terribly big deal though. However, you should have talked to others before making that decision. Just keep that in mind in the future. =P

Making 6 of them is on a whole other level and simply stupid.

I think it's fine to have one good enchanted diamond sword. From my experience there are only 3-4 of us on at any time anyway and I've rarely ever needed to defend myself in the tunnels. That sword just needs to be with someone online or in a chest. Having that sword on someone offline is a problem. Having 6 diamond swords is a problem.

Also one diamond shovel isn't the end of the world. That shovel should be used up obviously before more iron shovels are made.

If you're lagfree and know what you're doing you can handle any situation with an iron sword. I've never needed a diamond sword in my life. I think it's alright if somebody who finds it troublesome fighting monsters uses a diamond sword occasionally but I don't like the idea of everyone using them.

It's nice when dealing with spawners/ huge hordes of mobs
